With the fall season rapidly approaching, it would be a great time to start planning for your fall working wardrobe. As many plus size women know, finding styles and selection can some times be difficult, so getting a head start along with having a game plan is always a great idea.
First things first, go through your closet and do an inventory of your clothes. While it may seem a little much, dressing for the seasons can have a big effect on your credibility. For casual clothing, dressing in seasonal fashion is an indulgence, but for career wear it can have a direct impact on your earning potential. Investing in the right working wardrobe is a sound investment. With that said its time to see what you got.
Put aside all bright colors. for the fall season bright colors should be used very sparingly and only as an accent piece.
If you are not comfortable with the way it looks do not keep it. This rule should really be implemented at the buying stage. Too many times we rationalize a bad fit or weird style, or off color because its on sale. Trying to “make it work” usually ends up in a piece of clothing that sits in your closet. Its a waste of space and of money. Add up what you have spent on clothes that were on sale that you do not wear, compare that to the price of something you really loved but felt was to expensive. Usually you will find they are pretty close in price.
